starts now. >>> erin, thanks. tonight only on 360, why if the disease will not kill you the medical bills might. even if you have insurance. we'll take you inside one patient's bill and show you what the health care industry does not want you to see lean line by line, charge by inflated charge down by the paper cup. that's $12, by the way. sound like nickel and diming? it could cost you tens of thousands of dollars. also, jesse jackson jr.'s road from congress to the courthouse. the possibility of a long stretch in prison. the campaign cash with the former democratic congressman took and what was bought with it boggles the mind. we'll tell you about that shortly. we begin, though, with a major development in the killing that has captivated and confounded millions of people around the world. it's captivated them because the shooting death of a glamorous model allegedly at the hands of perhaps the bravest olympic athlete many modern memory could not be more stirring or tragic in and of itself. it's confounding because each day brings more news that does not seem to establish in any clear di
